I enjoyed this Irish tale part detective story and part thriller. Lilly kept me entertained throughout and had me hurrying to get to the last page." - William J. Torgerson. The author, Greg Lilly, made the transition from writing technical manuals to writing mystery novels. He grew up in Bristol, Virginia, lived in North Carolina, Arizona and Williamsburg, Virginia.
